The Rickenbacker class was a Federation starship type in the 23rd century classified as a "maximum security transport". (TOS reference: Spaceflight Chronology, TOS novel: The Final Reflection)

Known vessels[]

Note: In the Spaceflight Chronology the Rickenbacker's service life is listed as "2156 SFC--", with no end date. Since the SFC timeline and the canon timeline are so different, service dates cannot be precisely converted, but the best approximation would put the Rickenbacker class entering service circa 2211 and and continuing through at least the 2270s.
